Global Warming has become a serious issue in our world today. We are all being affected by it, and at the same time we do not realize how baldy this could affect our future. Many of us are aware of Global Warming, but we are not all on the same page with the subject. One side believes that Global warming is not actually what’s happening to our world, and instead it is something else that is or will be harming our world. The other side of the Global Warming debate people believes that it is global warming that is ruining the Earth and causing many catastrophes. There are many people in the world that believe that Global Warming is not what is causing this heat or anything for that matter. Instead of global warming people are predicting an Ice Age to come in the future. According to Shannon Goessling, many very well educated scientists have been warning us for decades that we are getting close to the end of the 11,500 year average period between ice ages. The “Little Ice Age” happened in the 1600s and it lasted nearly a century. Every 20 to 30 years, the much colder water near the bottom of the oceans cycles up to the top, where it has a slight cooling effect on global temperatures until the sun warms that water. That warmed water then brings slightly warmer global temperatures, until the next churning cycle. These people and scientists aren’t worried about Global Warming; they are more concerned about an Ice Age in the near future. On the other side of the argument, there are people that believe Global Warming is what is happening. Scott Clement says that scientists strongly believe that
Global Warming Paper Cameron Conolly
For years many people have believed that we are causing the Earth to warm up faster. Global Warming is the heating of the climate. Others believe it is due to natural climate processes. Either way, we know that Global Warming is a serious issue for our Earth.
One of the reasons we think Global Warming is occurring is because of Orbital Variations. “Orbital Variations” is part of a theory developed by Milutin Milkankovic. An astonishing fact about Milankovic…
Rise of Modern Science
Following years of debate publicly on whether global warming is due to natural activities or is the result of mankind, evidence suggests that extreme climate and weather changes are caused by humans. Over the years, the earths’ climate has wavered many times, from periods of record breaking heat to the ice ages. Changes in the sun’s force and the earths’ course around it, along with natural elements such as; erupting volcanos…
Global warming, also called climate change, has become a topic of concern
over the past decade. Climate has changed drastically over the past decade, “From
2001 through Feb, 2011 the atmospheric carbon dioxide increased by 22.2% of the
total increase from 1800 to 2001” (Pangburn). Although I wasn’t completely aware
of global warming and it’s circumstances until recently, I can honestly say that it is a
issue to be concerned about. Global Warming is an indisputable…
GLOBAL WARMING: NATURAL OR MAN-MADE
There is no question that there is an increase in Earth’s temperature and we are experiencing what is referred to as global warming. The Earth has experienced this many times in history on a much larger scale, but, humans did not exist (and would not have been able to exist) at the time. The questions now are whether human actions are accelerating the process of global warming and possibly decreasing Earth’s future sustainability; and, if so, what, if anything…
What Are the Causes of Global Warming?
What is global warming? According to NASA Earth Observatory, global warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earth’s average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases released as people burn fossil fuels. Global warming is the warming near the earth's surface that results when the earth's atmosphere traps the sun's heat. The earth is getting warmer. The changes are small, so far, but they are expected to grow and speed…

How do you feel about Global Warming? Is it real? What are the effects of it? How can we help stop or slow it down? In this paper I am going to explain how global warming has a direct effect on the modern.
To start yes, global warming is very real. The effects are harmful and as you keep reading this paper you will find what has happened because of it. One way we can slow it down is the Green Movement. The Green Movement is when Recycling, The Clean…
Global Warming: Rodriguez Tony P.3
Global warming is caused primarily by carbon dioxide from burning coal, oil and gas.
Certain gases that trap heat are building up in Earth's atmosphere. The primary culprit is carbon dioxide, released from burning coal, oil and natural gas in power plants, cars, factories, etc. (and to a lesser extent when forests are cleared). The second is methane, released from rice paddies, both ends of cows, rotting garbage in landfills, mining operations…
endless debate going on about global warming. Some people say that global warming is a threat to us socially, economically, politically, and immediate actions should be taken to minimize it. Whereas, other people say that global warming is beneficial and is a natural process that is required for the sustainability of life on earth. Hence, in my opinion, global warming is a potential threat that causes harm not only to humans, but also to the planet as a whole.
Global warming can be defined as the increase…
Is it caused by us?
“…Climate change is now with us. It will not go away.”(Musil, 17) Many of us have noticed that our Earth is getting warmer. We seem to ignore what is going on and just continue with our everyday life. There is evidence that our climate has been getting warmer ever year. Some scientist believe it is because of green house gases. Green house gases include the carbon dioxide from gases that our industry produces, methane gases that cows put off, and some believe…
Our world is forever changing. Since its formation, naturally occurring earth processes have influenced the climate causing it to either warm or cool. In the past, these natural cycles have resulted in global climates that are very different from what we are experiencing in the year 2013. Take for instance the last ice age of the Pleistocene epoch. Still at work today, these natural influences have recently been overshadowed by the human influences on climate, said…
